Finding Angel [edit]
by L.S.U. (Lifesavers Underground) | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: May 21, 2001
 

Given his stunning ability to consistently align himself with doomed record labels, it eventually became more expeditious for Michael Knott to start recording and releasing records on his own, distributing them through his website.

Finding Angel was Knott's first L.S.U. record in three years, and it finds him deliberately blurring the boundary between Michael Knott the solo performer and Michael Knott the L.S.U. frontman. The bulk of the songs on Finding Angel feature only Knott and his battered acoustic guitar, recorded through the internal mike of a cheap portable boom box. This tactic rubs the sheen clean off the songs, making the otherwise gentle compositions instead sound of one spirit with the fractured visions of Roky Erickson and Daniel Johnston.

Though "Chaser" is Knott's most chilling song since "Bye Bye Colour," most of Finding Angel is given over to ruminations on grace and relief. "Siren Unseen," with its stop-start cadence and artless lyrics, is fragile in a way Knott's previous high-gloss efforts have routinely bungled. The chorus of "Stereo/Radio" would have been absurd and gigantic on 16 tracks, but its rough-cut feel instead harks back to the blunted optimism of This Is the Healing.
